Admittedly, I have been flying primarily coast-to-coast, but my CS experiences have been fine. I do have low expectations though, and don't eat or drink anything while onboard, so that may be the...

I only had symptoms back in early February after an international trade show with about 50% Chinese National participation. I got better after about a week in isolation. But the PCR test is only...

Flew into LGA yesterday and no one was at our gate. I did see some slacker-looking government types at another gate, but their technique for preventing stragglers left much to be desired (i.e. it was...

Currently, I am seeing redemption values of about 1/3 cents per point for merch. That's a pretty bad haircut. Alternatively, you could buy flights at 1 CPP, if you are still flying domestically,...

It's funny you brought that up in this instance because Buffett dumped all of his airlines at a considerable loss. I think that he was wise with that move. See here:

Work needs to get done and I am out there doing it. Up to 45K BIS on UA since this thing started. I only use 3M N95s, anything less is a waste of time. When I am out in public, the mask never...

Good Post.

Airline economics will not allow for sustained decreased loads, i.e. empty middles, unless there are big price increases. UA is just setting their policies based on demand. Risk is...

Thanks for the informative report. I haven't done any international travel yet and so have no experience with mask compliance on a very long flight.

The problem that I've witnessed on my many UA flights (26) in the last 8 weeks isn't that people are taking their masks off, it's that they lower them enough so that their nose is free, or the masks...

I just completed my 26th segment on UA since mid-April (~40K BIS miles) and am currently happy with them. Seat pitch on UA in E+ is always better than WN, so there is no way I fly them unless they...

Useless Policy

This relies on the "honor system" and as such, is completely unenforceable. No one is going to know if you are lying, but it really doesn't matter if you use some common sense and wear your mask on...
